Bucco Joins Call for Resignation of U.S. Senator Robert Menendez
Senate Minority Leader Anthony M. Bucco has called for the resignation of U.S. Senator Robert Menendez following multiple allegations made in a federal indictment.
“Senator Menendez, like every American, is entitled to the presumption of innocence and a fair and speedy trial. However, given the very disturbing nature of this indictment, Senator Menendez should resign from his United States Senate seat in Washington,” said Bucco (R-25). “Elected officials must be held to the highest of standards and have the confidence of the people they represent. The allegations are very disturbing, and the Senator has yet to offer any explanation of how he received so much cash and gold bars, and he has not denied improperly disclosing sensitive U.S. information to a foreign government. At this point, having been stripped of his leadership duties, he cannot effectively represent the residents of the State. For that reason, he should resign immediately.”
